Chairman & Founder

Warren A. Stephens

Warren Stephens, Jack’s son, joined his father in the investment banking business in 1981 and became President and CEO of Stephens Inc. in 1986. He continues in that role, including Chairman, as the second generation of leadership in the 91 year old firm. Warren is the Chairman and founder of the Jackson T. Stephens Cup tournament. 

“Our goal is to create a distinctive and highly-competitive collegiate tournament that is comprised of tomorrow’s PGA TOUR and LPGA stars playing some of the country’s premier golf courses. Dad really enjoyed following amateur golf, especially at the college level. Therefore, he would be very humbled and proud that this tournament is named in his honor.”
